An all-day restaurant on the quay by the tourist office, claiming to be both pizzeria, brasserie and bar. It almost shouted "tourist trap", but I still fell into it. It turned out to be another French eatery where the chef had no idea how to...More

Nice location food okay but nothing special. I had mussels and frites, lots of both but lacking in flavor. My husband had steak frites. Again okay but the beef quite chewy.

Well located close to the aquarium and the maritime museum, this restaurant offers good value and quick lunches. We had the mussels and chips, which were average. Lunchtime is very busy but the staff manage the numbers well and service is prompt.
